Awfully sorry for my lack of posts recently! One of the perils of being a newly qualified teacher, especially around the March-May period, is the stress of exams and a constantly increasing workload. I've got to be careful to stay afloat of my huge piles of essay marking or I can find myself drowning in essays. A good chunk of my Easter holidays were spent simply chugging through my 180 Year 9 and Year 11 essays. I got all those done and this weekend I've found myself stuck with another 90! Great times -_-. Next month I'll be a lot more constant with updates. I noticed last year I was very good around the June-August summer period, I'm sure this year will be pretty much the same thing.
So Korean cosmetics! I'm a sucker for cutesy packaging and natural ingredients so Korean cosmetics always intrigue me. They make a lot of claims and these don't always work out for me but at a few pounds a pop they're affordable enough to try.
I buy from eBay but have recently joined sasa.com which seems a lot more reliable so will most likely use that in future for Asian skincare splurges.
Etude House Secret Beam highlighter (around £7) has some rather large looking particles of shimmer in it. It doesn't do much for my oily skin rather than make me pores look ginormous but I use it when doing others' makeup and it looks good on those with medium skin tones.
Baviphat lemon lip balm (around £4) is surprisingly good and tastes good too.
